The School Resource Officer (SRO) program operates as an agreement
between the Calgary Police Service, the Calgary Board of Education and the
Calgary Catholic School District.
School Resource Officers are sworn law enforcement officers with the
Calgary Police Service who are places placed in schools. A School Resource
Officer generally possesses a background in working with youth and
community-based programs. The officers provide a visible and positive image of
law enforcement. They are usually seen as a friend or mentor to students rather
than a uniformed officer. The officers provide advice and guidance, and can
assist in instances of bullying and school violence.
The program is committed to fostering partnerships among law enforcement,
the school and the community. It helps to ensure safe school environments,
successful students and productive citizens.
School Resource Officers have a strong relationship with Crime Stoppers. When tips are related to a high
school the SRO is assigned to, the tip will generally go directly to the
officer to be dealt with. This partnership helps the officer to identify
offenders with their knowledge of the students and repeat offenders.
